White jeans in the Winter?

Morning all, hope you're all fairing well, and are all right white.

I have a question to ask you today, it's about something I've been pondering over for a while.
Would you wear white jeans In the Winter?  My answer for years would have been an obvious No!
However, I seem to be changing my mind! - you see I've seen this trend so often in recent months, but have never had the nerve to wear it, mainly for fear of getting it dirty in our not-so-dry, mucky weather.

One look in particular I've been musing over is the all white look.  I figured as I was going to wear my white jeans in the winter months I might as well go the whole hog and try this one out.   To my surprise I really like it!  I'm thinking I'll still be picking and choosing when I'll wear this trend, and now I like the look, I'll happily choose it again.

It did seem strange wearing white jeans in cold weather, but actually enjoyed putting them on and feeling warm in them.  I would usually wear them in summer months, but they tend to make me all hot and sticky and somewhat uncomfortable!   However, none of that at the weekend, I'm converted!


My skinny jeans from Matalan were really my only choice for this look, a didn't want to wear either  straight leg or boot cut options because I knew they would be dragging in the wet stones and sand, and the muddy paths and grass.
Fitting at the perfect length to meet my booties this was just how I wanted them to look. I picked a plain white shirt with super double cuffs and wide collar - over this I wore a plain white jumper, slightly shorter to reveal the scooped hemline of my shirt. I suppose I have cheated with the tan boots, but I felt that was the nearest neutral option










Cute double cuff feature on this shirt from TK Maxx, I turned it over the cuff of my jumper, quite like this look, and I may have to try with a different coloured jumper in the future.








Breaking the all white theme with this scarf I've had for ages, totally by chance it matches really well with the beach backdrop.



Can you tell by the look on my face I really wanted to sit down?  Although I really didn't think a nice browny/green line would go well on the back of my white jeans! Ha ha ha.



Another of my many TK Maxx bargain bags - this Osprey stunner was a fraction of the price, always comes in handy and is sometimes 'borrowed' by my daughters.  A crossover bag is just so helpful when out shopping, I'm a tactile person, and love being able to feel the clothes, certain fabrics I know by feeling that they won't, hang right or feel good on - I can't bear anything that clings to me, itches me or scratches me! Does anyone agree with me on that?




I was so lucky with the weather for these photos, Esther-Ruby took some amazing beach shots.  Just love the colours of the pebbles and the patterns in the wet sand.

Have you ventured out in white jeans this winter?  Or are they an 'only for summer' item?

Please stop by tomorrow - because I'm posting my before and after Irresistible Me Hair Extensions blog, I'm so excited to show you all.


Bye for today. x

  3. Hi Jacqui, I'm more a white jeans in Spring person. I just can't quite relate them to our British dull weather and short winter days. You chose a nice bright day there which helped to make it work. They go beautifully with your brown boots and bag. I've never thought of TK Maxx for bags. I must look tomorrow.

    1. Yes I was so lucky with the weather, and will definitely have to choose when to wear them. Oh TK Maxx is my favourite bag shop - hope you find a bargain, then you can show it on my blog. x

  4. Super white outfit, great with your dark hair. You look over pretty in your choice.
    I challenged myself to wear them last autumn. White needs some good natural light, something we are generally short of but you've hit lucky with all that sunshine! Great outfit, great photos.

  5. You look amazing. I noticed Jodie doing the all white thing on her blog and I've seen a few other bloggers wearing their white jeans with boots and so on. It simply works and it makes me think of spring and summer. My turn to try it, I think. Thanks for sharing! - Amy

  6. I think they look great - but like you said they might not always be the most practical, but then they're not in the summer either. Popping over from Laurie's celebrating style
